decades relaxing these rules. index. the imf developed economies are more likely to allow capital over the border. developing countries are only a little more likely. for a while, among economists and the imf capital controls were considered something polite countries did not talk about. that was before the financial crisis. 2008, 18 from the imf arrived in iceland. they help the country pass a law saying you couldn't get money off the island unless you are using it for travel or to buy goods. 2012, the imf came around. disruptive capital outflows can create policy challenges. for sometimeseak things get so bad, you should not be allowed to leave with your money. it's an attitude that came in handy next year when cyprus decided that international transfers of more than 5000 euros had to be approved by a committee. if you have euros in that country, there's a very
good reason to get them out. hence the possibility of capital controls. what did we learn since 2008? it helps to literally be island. cash can be discovered going in around. whyou can explain to people they can't travel abroad with more than 1000 euros, you have a better chance of getting them to obey. third, is easier to get into capital control than it is to get out of them. also, branding. the imf no longer speaks about capital control. it says capital flow management. european leaders holding an emergency summit on greece on monday. the european central bank held an emergency session today announcing additional aid for greek banks after more than 3 billion euros were withdrawn this week. pimm: let's find out more. i want to bring in danny, economic professor at dartmouth college and a former policy maker. what do you make on what's going to happen over the next 48
hours? and what happens monday? denny: it reminds me of what happened in northern iraq. the begin was crucial because all of the discussion was actually about the fact that you really worry about what happens when the bank opens on monday. talking about the central bank saying you were saying this is a liquidity crisis. in essence come all the things you talk about suggest anyone sitting in greece that there is a fundamental crisis. and they probably should get their money out. it has been coming out during the week. this looks to me like first of all, the worry is monday. fundamentally, what we haven't heard is a long-term fix. it's just a short-term band-aid, if you like. where is the long-term fix? as anis no such thing
expanding fiscal contraction, which means more austerity means further down. i don't think this is in any sense a fix. either something will happen by monday, or it will happen at a future monday in the next two or three months. scarlet: in the meantime, what would force the greek government to impose bank controls or capital controls or capital management, as it's euphemistically being called now? >> obviously money going out of the banks. it has been doing that over the last few days. if you were to listen to what happened today, presumably you would think if you had money and a great bank, it was time to get out of the bank. that is the worry. they understand that. we should go back and think what here is actually going to do something to help greece raise the gdp and lower the unemployed a rate? i don't see anything. pimm: danny, who are the key
players in this besides the greek prime minister and greek finance minister? danny: the german finance minister and angela merkel are important figures here. but they are the really the two main ones. greece actually does have a bargaining chip. i haven't heard people say that france and germany actually have greece ownseuros -- them. greece has been a default half of the last 250 years. if they default, is a huge amount of money, it's a political disaster. it also has an impact on the other members of the community, of the eurozone. i do think the whole thing has contagion in the air. we don't know what the long-run effects are in the u.k. or even in the u.s.. that is the fear that this generates another global financial crisis. in some sense, that is the card
as wellrus is playing, as -- he is russia today, talking to vladimir putin. this is high-stakes poker, i guess you would call it. scarlet: do you see anything coming out of that? where russia could come in and be a white knight? danny: i don't know about being a white knight. all of the eu members are going to vote on the new will of sanctions in a few months time. and what one country can stop it? obviously that is part of it. apparently greece and russia signed a deal today with a pipeline going through it. i think this is political positioning. i keep going back to -- there is the long run fix? what will get the greek economy to expand? since 2010.wn 25% thehe measures imposed by
troika are implemented, i see outputs falling for kurt -- further. this is crisis upon crisis. temporary fix. there is no evidence here whatsoever of a long run fix. and the fundamental thing is that austerity hasn't worked in greece. it hasn't worked anywhere else. pimm: that is the impasse we have. you. was flour, thank still ahead on the "bloomberg market day." arelet: why investors pouring money into comedies that could stop a cyber attack. we differentiate the winners from the also-rans. ♪

godiva is opening stores in china, taiwan, korea. it's a luxury product, and asians -- in particular chinese -- if they are going to spend their dollars, they are going to spend on luxury, so it might be that hershey is not hitting that premium market or there's only a limited amount that the chinese are spending because they are going through a slowdown. they will spend more on luxury goods and maybe not so much on kisses.s and hershey's pimm: i understand they bought a candy maker that kindles -- that caters to local tastes, but it could also be that the dollar has gotten stronger, and as a result, what ever business you do overseas is going to do -- whatever business you do overseas is going to look worse. betty: that can only explain part of the picture. you e-mailed me earlier asking
